Job insecurity and workloads stress out brokers' employees

An overwhelming majority of staff in the insurance broking sector feel increased stress at work because of the recession, new research has revealed.

Employment law consultancy Peninsula found that 76% of the nearly 600 employees it surveyed in the broking profession felt stressed, particularly about job security and potential redundancies.

Also, two-thirds of the 148 employers polled said they had seen an increase in stress-related employee absences.
